Intermittent fasting is an evidence-based weight loss method that limits the timeframe in which a person eats. The most popular intermittent fasting schedule is 16/8, where you only consume meals during an eight-hour window.
Launch a 30-day intermittent fasting challenge with your coworkers, friends or family. Record and share the ongoing results!!
Alternate-day fasting—Alternating between days of no food restriction with days that consist of one meal that provides about 25% of daily calorie needs. Example: Mon-Wed-Fri consists of fasting, while alternate days have no food restrictions.
Whole-day fasting—1-2 days per week of complete fasting or up to 25% of daily calorie needs, with no food restriction on the other days. Example: The 5:2 diet approach advocates no food restriction five days of the week, cycled with a 400-500 calorie diet the other two days of the week.
Time-restricted feeding—Following a meal plan each day with a designated time frame for fasting. Example: Meals are eaten from 8am-3pm, with fasting during the remaining hours of the day.
